Energy that is Green (and Orange)

Recent articles in the NY Times profile some interesting developments in energy production:

  • The Search for Energy Takes a Turn Underwater (9 Aug 2012, U.S.) “Next week, a device that looks a bit like an eggbeater turned sideways will be lowered into the water here to catch the energy of the rushing water, spinning a generator that, come September, is scheduled to begin sending power to the grid.”
  • The Secret to Solar Power (9 Aug 2012, Magazine) “Most mornings, Danny Kennedy hops on a bike with orange saddlebags and rides half an hour from his home to Oakland’s Jack London Square. He makes for quite a picture cruising down Telegraph Avenue, decked out as he often is in an orange helmet, orange jacket and orange leather Adidas shoes. When he arrives at his office, he often makes his rounds on an orange indoor bike. (He’s not joking around with the orange thing.)” Nor is he joking about residential solar power stations as a huge financial pay-off for investors.
